Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: ' SEE YA' - I follow Phil's lead

Phil Lesh
***1/5/06***
I had two conversations with Cameron Sears, our CEO at GDP, regarding Archive, starting when our material first showed up there. I told Cameron that I was fine having the audience tapes up there, but that he should talk to everyone, including Bob Hunter and John Barlow, regarding the soundboards. A year later when I had not heard anything about the boards, I mentioned to Cameron that I felt by not doing anything we were making a decision about the boards and that I was fine with that. Again I urged him to talk to everyone. I was caught by complete surprise when, right before Thanksgiving, the recordings were pulled. I feel that Bobby was not updated properly and unfairly took most of the heat. A lot of our business disagreements are the result of poor communication from advisors. Bobby is my brother and I love him unconditionally; he is a very generous man, and was unfairly judged regarding the Archive issue. -Philzone

Bob's response was a bit childish, but in the end the band has been very generous by letting this and similar ventures continue. I was thinking about how strange it is that they recorded so many shows -- and played so many shows.

I think they should do some sorts of meta-critical pieces, like a Blue Ray DVD on the history of Dark Star ot The Other One. Like the documentary on American Beauty as an expanded version of Grayfolded.

An alternative advantage of DVD audio is that it hasn't been cracked for consumers, and minimal graphics are needed.

ya da...

Childish? maybe. But when dozens of self entitled blood suckers threaten to boycott the band they allegedly love because the band pulls the soundboards, well, "See ya" is about right. Bob wasn't aiming that at the general rank and file, just at the abusive, insulting, childish assholes who hadn't downloaded all 6,000 shows yet. Good for him to speak his mind. Again--the folks he insulted were the bloodsuckers who, in most cases, didn't buy gdp material. Of course, if you buy a ticket to a show, I guess that entitles you to everything you can get your hands on.

God forbid a member of the Dead get pissed off.

"O.K but let's say that the only boards in circulation were commercially released stuff. that would equal what, 75, 80 shows?"

That's 75-80 soundboards more than you can find for most bands worth listening to.

"who the fuck can survive on so few shows?"

I'm not a doctor, nor a biologist but I am pretty sure that you could survive with absolutely NO shows. Grateful Dead soundboards are a joy, but definitely not a prerequisite to life.

"i wanna hear the good shows in this LIFETIME thank you."

We all wanna hear the "good shows", but we're not guaranteed that we will be afforded that luxury. And, we don't have an inalienabe right to these shows. They are there because(and when) the rightful owner decides to share them with us. Be Grateful, for one day you will surely be Dead.
